Gluten-Free, Grain-Free Brownies {Paleo}

 We had company over for dinner last week and I made brownies for dessert.  I wanted to be sure my hubby had some kind of dessert as well.  These turned out more like a chocolate bread than a super sweet brownie, which is great for those that don't like a lot of sweet.  They have a good texture and a great cocoa flavor.  If you are okay with chocolate chips, I think a few sprinkled on top of the batter before baking would really be a nice sweet touch.  The plate was empty by the next day and the kids enjoyed them too.

Recipe (makes about 9-12 squares)
1 cup Organic Creamy Almond Butter
1/3 cup Organic Agave Nectar
1 egg
1 teaspoon good quality Vanilla
1/3 cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1. Preheat oven to 350'F.  In a mixing bowl combine wet ingredients; almond butter, agave, egg and vanilla.
2. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, stir to combine.
3. Bake in a greased 8"x8" glass baking dish at 350'F for 20-22 minutes until set and sides begin to pull away form the glass..
4. Let cool then slice into squares and serve.
